Family Bonds Japanese Tattoo

Together with Master Takase, create a custom and personal Family Bonds Japanese Tattoo that shows the central importance of your family in your life.

The key to this design is the translation of all your family's names into Japanese. Names are translated to Japanese by how they are pronounced and not by how they are spelled. For this reason, it is important that we have the proper pronunciation of each name. We have a great section on Names in Japanese if you would like to learn more.

Once we have good translations for each name, Master Takase then creates samples showing different fonts and layouts. You have input into every step and Master Takase will create new designs based on your feedback until the design is exactly what you want.

The final design is emailed to you in Adobe PDF format and this has everything you need to get the design inked, including a detailed explanation and the line art which your tattoo artist must have to properly ink the design. Simply take this to your tattoo artist and you will have an original Japanese tattoo design that is unique and just for you.

To begin, select the Tattoo Size and enter the names that you would like. It is also helpful if you tell us which are the parents and which are the children.

This Family Bonds Japanese Tattoo represents the eternal connection of family. The main character is 絆 (read kizuna) means “Family Bonds”. This surrounds the names of each family member of your family. In this sample, the parents are written to either side and the children are protected in-between.

The names are translated to Japanese using katakana which is the standard way non-Japanese names are written in Japanese. This is purely a phonetic translation so the characters have no meaning and so there is no possibility of strange or bad meanings.

This is a completely custom design and you will be working directly with Master Japanese Calligrapher Eri Takase to make the design exactly the way you want it. To begin, let us know the names in the description and if we have questions about the pronunciation or any details we will discuss these with you as part of the design process.

Takase Studios has both native English and native Japanese speaking translators so you know the translation will be absolutely correct. Further, we provide you with dictionary references and additional resources. This way you will be completely comfortable with the translation.

Along with the translation, we also work with you on the font and layout. We do this by emailing you samples that are hand-lettered by Master Takase. We then discuss and modify the design as needed. In this manner, you will have input into each step and we proceed in this fashion until the design is exactly the way you want it. We work with you to create a design that is just for you.

The final design is delivered digitally in Adobe PDF format. This means the final design will print out just as Master Takase designed it. The final design includes the original art, the matching line art that your tattoo artist will need to ink the design, and a description of each element in the design – the English, the Japanese reading and the Japanese text. The design is well documented so you know exactly what the tattoo says.

    My experience with Eri has been nothing but positive. She was very patient and professional as we went through several iterations of the Family Bond kanji. The design was further challenged by having to incorporate 8 members of my family to the design without compromise to the design’s integrity. The final design was as I envisioned. The tattoo was completed two weeks ago and I am very satisfied with the outcome. The artwork was perfect… So much so that 3 pieces of the work have already been created for other family members. I am sure more orders are forthcoming. Thanks again, Eri!

    Quite simply outstanding service!!! The process from initial thoughts to final piece was very quick, very professional and also very personal. I certainly didn’t expect this level of imput into the design. Eri was constantly in contact letting me know how things were going and the final artwork was outstanding. This won’t be the last order I place here. All I have to do now is find a tattoo artist who can do Eri’s work justice!

    Eri is a wonderful artist. Her designs are inspiring and very beautiful. She was very helpful and informative when she assisted with my design, and provided the necessary templates for me to take to my tattoo artist in a very short space of time, from the time of ordering. I would recommend her work to anyone. I am infact in contact with her again for my next tattoo design. I wouldn’t allow anyone else to design another tattoo for me. Simply beautiful work!
